Attendance Mrs O’Donnell has returned to work this week and we have an attendance review meeting booked for Wednesday. The main playground doors open at 8.30am and close at 8.45am. Children should be in school during this time and any arrival after 8.45am is recorded as a late mark on our registers. Being late for school impacts greatly on children’s learning as lessons begin promptly after the register has closed. If children are poorly and will be absent from school, then parents need to phone the school office by 9.30am; it may be that Mrs O’Donnell will return your call and usually on the third day of absence we make a visit to your home. If we have no reason for your child being absent from school because you have not contacted us, then we will make a home visit on the first day of absence. We need to work together to ensure all children attend school every day!
